Duckies support PB schools

A recent "rubber ducky derby" not only gave participants a quacking good time, it also raised $1,500 for Pacific Beach secondary schools.
Part of the 12th annual Pacific BeachFest on Oct. 9, the derby was sponsored by the Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools, an organization that supports Mission Bay High and Pacific Beach Middle schools.
In addition to the BeachFest, the Taste of Pacific Beach, silent auctions and family nights are activities organized by the Friends. Funds are available to teachers, counselors and school administrators to be used in various ways to support academic and social success of our students.
Over the years these funds have provided Pacific Beach Middle School with a marquee and murals. The staff and students greatly appreciate the additional resources, especially during these economically challenging times.
